Discover a Secret Garden. I’ll let you in on a little secret: native plants are the cornerstone to a healthy ecosystem because 90% of leaf eating insects, including caterpillars that turn into butterflies, can only eat the plants that are native to their region. Most plants in urban garden are from China, Australia, Africa and so on. At my botanical design studio, right in the heart of quaint Sabin neighborhood, I’ll take you on an intimate walk through my educational secret habitat garden to commune and open your world to the beauty and purpose of native plants. Then, you'll learn about design and get your hands dirty creating your own unique living centerpiece in a vintage lamp globe with your own choice of creatures, branches, moss or rocks. You'll find eclectic vintage and found objects waiting to be repurposed. You'll walk away with a centerpiece for your outdoor dining experience, inspired and equipped to create your own habitat garden. Last but not least, you can write your dream to manifest on my repurposed vintage bed spring called Spring of Hope. What a wholesome experience!
My name is Weina Dinata. I am passionate about advocating native plants as the base food web for our ecosystem. My business is Poppy & Finch, born out of my graphic design background & passion of the beauty & purpose of native plants. I create one-of-a-kind living habitat centerpieces in repurposed containers for special occasion/event, design educational paper goods & gardener's bandannas, & host informative hands-on workshops (centerpieces, moss balls, wall-mount, block-printing, etc.). I am exposing the beauty & purpose of native plants through my design & art so that they will be more relevant/engaging to the uneducated people who are not aware their importance to our environment. My workshop is personalized, insightful & inspiring including a habitat garden tour that was transformed from lawn with exotic/invasive plants into a haven.

I transformed my garden from lawn and exotic/invasive plants into an educational haven of beneficial insects and birds for the neighbors/community to learn about the importance of native plants! It is gold certified for backyard habitat. My garden and home studio, is full of eclectic collections over the years of repurposed vintage centerpieces, garden decor and designed home goods that give the garden and studio charms, joy and inspirations.
